Depleted Energy (aka, Monday)

Remember all of that wrestling over the weekend? Monday rolled around in the study and we seemed to have an extended case of depleted energy.

Roscoe crashed in the middle of the study floor.

In yesterday’s story, we showed how Roscoe and Typhoon “helped” the Hu-Dad by keeping him entertained during busyness. We can only guess that the show took a lot of effort since Monday seemed to bring a depleted energy from the boys.

I'm doing my best to look cute, but I'm so tired.

Our rainy weather continued, too, so it might be a simple case of bored with the weather. Or recharging for future misadventures. But whatever the cause, not a lot of movement was happening.

Interestingly, Hu-Dad used this opportunity to exact a little revenge for their Sunday antics. He kept using the camera and keeping our boys awake. The response is fairly summed up by this look from Typhoon.

Keep interrupting my nap and you will pay, human.
